media to make your elected officials accountable. there is no reason they ought to be taking recesses when they are facing a sequester frankly. the debt ceiling back in 2011. half our time in the senate between january and june, half of our time was not spent on legislative business. in fact in 2011 alone, it was one of the fewest number of days we've been in session since 1992 and here it was coinciding with one of the event that created the highest level of policy uncertainty of any event over the last 20 years, surpassing the wars, surpassing the financial crieses, september 11th. just to name some major events. and that debt ceiling debacle did more to disrupt the public's confidence in the integrity of the political process in washington. so you have to make your elected officials accountable. have you social immediate yafment you can build an online community snainsly and you get a message multiplire. by doing that you can find out where your law makers are. are they in session five days a week? they should be working. these are things you can be doing now. these are simple solu
still are very scared of what happened in 1994. the narrative that emerged from that election was a vote for the assault weapons ban contributed to the democrats losing their majority in the house and people in the senate and in the congress don't want to relive that, for better or worse. >> people like tom foley out in spokane. you're right. speaker of the house lost in that race. >> democratic senators from red states where mitt romney ran are vulnerable. here we have mark pryor of arkansas, begih of alaska, mary landrieu and a lot of these people who are passionate on gun rights will remember every election from now on and vote accordingly against these people. >> well, chris, it's true that i would suggest to senators that there's some things worse than not being re-elected. but i also think they give the gun lobby way too much credit. let's take harry reid, who has coward before the gun lobby if harry reid thinks it's gun lobbyists who got him back in the election, he's nuts. he lost the male vote. it was the obama coalition of union voters, young voters who put harry reid back in o
him. not an elected official, but a bureaucrat doing this. this is the problem and the concern i have for the future of the usa and i do not own a gun. thank you. g: i mean, that is a valid point. it is important to point out that all of the measures under consideration, the assault weapons ban, the prohibition on high-capacity ammunition magazines, they would not be retroactive. the government would not take away guns that someone currently owns. they were just ban you from being able to purchase the gun in the future. that is why we have seen so many long lines at the gun store, where people are buying weapons they fear might be banned in the future, but the government would not take them away if you already own them. host: we saw a piece recently in "bloomberg businessweek" looking at the power of the nra and the debates over guns. they go over some items for gun control opponents to remember him calling them "hard realities. why is that not translating into votes in congress? guest: it is partly because the gun rights groups, the nra, manufacturers, sporting associations, have bee
rejected in the election. tomorrow, republicans are expected to vote for the ryan budget overwhelmingly and that has some democrats licking their chops. "the hill" reports that the democrats are ready to slam gop on the ryan budget putting this out on tut this ad before the 2 election. so go ahead, republicans, vote for that ryan budget. the american people are going to have a very different vote for you very soon. joining me now is congressman -- democratic congressman grayson and cynthia tucker. >> good to be here, reverend. >> it might be the worst one yet. how do you explain these republicans in the house? >> it's bad for seniors, bad for children, and it's bad for everyone, even white guys. it raises the debt by $6 trillion. that's $20,000 for every man, women, and child in this country for the sake of giving a $400,000 tax break to millionaires. the republicans are literally trying to bribe millionaires with their own money. >> cynthia, a new poll shows that paul ryan's favorability rating before the election in august was 50%. now it's down to 35%. they are following someone who
because we learned from last year's elections that a decade ago, two decades ago is no longer what some of those states in terms of the electorate has become. and i think you could galvanize your vote if you took some stands in some of those states. >> congressman? >> look, the way the mayor's doing this is the way he ought to do it. i'm a democrat. i want democrats to be in a majority. but there comes a time when politics must not supersede that which is right. the majority of us in this country believes the direction we're going in terms of universal background checks is the right thing to do. if some democrats fall or stand in the way, so be it. i want to be in the majority. it's not fun in the minority. but i also would like to have a society where we're not scheduling almost some kind of tragedy every other month. >> no problem with that at all with me. i agree with you, because the majority is a wonderful thing to have but if we cannot stand up when babies are shot in newtown and children are shot in the streets of chicago, over 500 last year, then what are we in the majority for
. >> of course that is exactly what the strategy seems to have been in the last two election cycles is to write off vast swaths of the population. jonathan, i want to talk about the politics of this before we have to go. that is, obviously on the democratic party side, i mean, this is kind of a, you know, no brainer gate issue i would say for someone seeking the nomination on the democratic ticket. on the republican side, though, i'm not sure i agree with karl rove that the person who is their nominee would be an advocate. it certainly seems like it's going to be a much tougher issue in 2016 for someone seeking national office, given the numbers that chad was just talking about. >> very tough for someone on the republican side to not be in favor of marriage equality? >> correct. i mean, given the fund-raising issues. this is an area where republicans are raising a lot of money. it's obviously an area where vast swaths of the population have changed their opinion. >> right. >> i think it's going to be a harder position for republican in 2016. >> well, yes. if not 2016, certainly by 2020. look, i
to the specifics. watch for the senators from red states up for re-election and the pressure is greatest on them. they are away two weeks now from washington, back home, and there will be pressure on them. they will hear from their constituents about what to do from this. if you don't have much support, if any, among republicans, you need those democrats to get it through. >> hey, mark, give me a sense of harry reid's role in this. he wants to keep that title senate majority leader. navigating through these ice floes of this. >> it's already on the side of those who would like to see a large package, including a pretty big risk background check provision. it's not clear to me what more opponents can be to put pressure on senator reid. senator reid has a long history with the nra. they did not support him in his re-election race and i think he is looking for a path that not only protects his own views on gun control and not only tries to accommodate the white house but try to protect the majority. i think he is very stensive not just on guns but a range of issues too. all of these democrats are u
to our colleagues in congress that fear is not an option. fear of not being read elected, we are paralyzed right now. we have to stop it. >> is there anything that congress can pass to curb the piling -- violence? there is nothing that can be done that would protect our children in the vast majority of america, do you agree with that? >> i refuse to believe that. i am hoping that we will pass some version of a repeal of a writer that has been attached to the appropriations bill. all of us are trying to work to repeal the amendment, which means that it would make it easier for law enforcement to conduct gun tracing efforts. right now they are preventing so many ways. i think there are some measures. uphill battle, but we have to ask the american people that this is a wake-up call. we have to rally around, ensuring that your members of congress are accountable to what you believe will provide for safety for our children. >> when this newtown, connecticut, this situation happened, they were horrified and felt that this was the tipping point. this was the signal moment that somet
they lost in the election. >> we have to do a lot better job and do a lot more to make up ground in minority communities with women and young voters. the rnc cannot and will not write off any demographic community or region of this country. >> make up ground with women in minorities? really? then why did the republicans in arkansas ran through a new voter i.d. bill to suppress the minority vote? why do they poise the ban all in a state, a state that has the most restrictive laws in the country? during the election, president obama promised change we can believe in and he's delivering. republicans promise change, too. but nobody believes in it, least of all the republicans. joining me now are krystal ball and joan walsh. thanks for being here tonight. >> thanks for having us, reverend. >> do the republicans not notice their rhetoric, that it doesn't mesh with their reality? >> i don't know, to be honest with you. because on the one hand, they see the demographic trends. the rnc conducted an autopsy of their dead party. we know that there's a problem. >> we call it a flawtopsy. >> on the other
trying to figure out why they lost so big on election night. they lost african-americans, asian americans, latinos, young people and women. those are big problems but republicans are ignoring the real solutions. look, i think you're going to continue to have a problem. >> the problem is with their policies. there is no nice way to tell seniors you're changing social security. to tell latinos we're profiling you, we're suppressing your vote. we don't need a smile. we need new policies. thank you for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> religious war. let's play "hardball." good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. i'm not washington. let me start tonight with this. you can't steer a car with the engine off. it's problem with the republican party today. get rid of the cultural right, abortion and gay marriage, all those began who moving to the republican party over prayer in public school years ago and you kill one giant engine. get rid of the whackos as john mccain cats them and you lose another engine. all the libertarians who just want government out of their
or $20 million in every election cycle literally buys vehicles, because the american public doesn't president in our democracy. if the listeners out there did one thing and one thing only one take away right now, it's call the -- the congress the switchboard, 202-224-3121, ask to speak to your elected officials wherever you are from whatever state, whatever district, and tell them to stand up to the gun industry. stand up to the nra and their nonsense that is killing 87 americans every day, require a background check for gun sales, prohibit the sale of magazine ammunition magazines, you know, over ten rounds when police are carrying 13 and are out gunned by criminals, and then let's bring the assault weapon ban up for a vote. it's the common denominator used in all of the major mass shootings in public places, the american people want it, the majority of gun owners support it, and it's simply the nra and their blood money contributors and the gun industry that are keeping our kids from dying unnecessarily from gun violence. >> michael: i was so frustrated
election. stricter photo id laws in pennsylvania and shortening the early -- taking away the early voting in sunday in florida. my colleague took him to task on that. let's listen to michael. >> how does priebus reconcile his approach and agreement with voter registration policies that many in the black community view as anti-black, racist. you can show up any time. it's what you say and what you do when you get there that matters most to people. >> priebus was asked about steel's criticism right there this morning by luke russert. he dodged the question. i think you will see the dodge. let's watch. >> what's your response to him? >> well, i'm not going to -- i'm not going to engage in an argument with michael. but, you know, the fact of the matter is you have to have the resources to be able to have an effective ground operation in minority communities. if you don't market and brand your party on a regular basis i think that you're going to continue to have problems. that's a big piece of what we're trying to do here. >> you know, it was well advertised by the republican party, not by yo
. and it wasn't so long as throughout the 2012 election cycle they spent a lot of time insulting black voters, insulting hispanic voters and ignoring asian voters. this is going to be an ongoing challenge for them if they want to woo minority voters because people don't forget. and i doesn't think they fully understand just how much damage was done through that election cycle with the rhetoric that was used. it was not lost on us when they made a point about obama voters being lazy, wanting free things from the government. those comments were not lost on our communities. the other issue the republican party has and what they need to address is their unwillingness to call out racism when it occurs in their party. when democrats, there was a situation recently where a liberal group made a comment about senator mcconnell's wife and progressives were very quick to condemn those statements because they had racial overtones. the republicans have got to be willing when people in their party say something sexist or racist to condemn it and push those type of people out of the party. and they seem unw
think also that he is looking at the fact that he has some democratic seats up for re-election in 2014. and in 2014. and in some states that it's going to be very difficult to hold. places like west virginia and arkansas. and so he's, he's really not quite ready. i think to sort of put his members on the line for this. so he will allow these to be offered as amendments from the floor. but there are also likely to be some amendments from the other side. it was interesting, too, to see vice president biden yesterday, up with mayor bloomberg. saying that the white house is basically not giving up this fight. but it sure doesn't seem how you get these things done. >> i thought, i'm glad you made that point. i thought joe biden saying -- remember newtown, pointing his finger, very telling. because particularly joe biden is someone who understands the math of the senate you've just laid out. john, do we, at this point, so now the big piece of the bill now appears to be background checks. can you give me your assessment of the political landscape? does that and the other few things that are a
days, three days before the election and scare the with its out of everybody. and a lot of these politicians know that. and there's a lot of fear of that. and a lot of concern about that. the truth is not going to come out. that's not what the letter's going to say when it hits. and the campaign they're going to run will say, they want to take away their guns, they want registration so the federal government can come in and take your guns away. that's what the debate will be. >> governor dean, as someone that had a strong rating from the nra, i want to point to some of the reaction comes from senators who are probably going to have a hard time on the vote on this bill. mark pryor says in a statement, with i don't take gun advice from the mayor of new york city. i listen to arkansans. there's a little bit more room in the statement from senator mary landrieu. senator landrieu has a great deal of respect for mayor bloomberg on a great deal issues, but the senator will be listening closely to her constituents on this issue. you hear that and look at the poll, it is overwhel
relationship. both of them have been recently re-elected. they more or less are on the same wavelength when it comes to israel's security. and the two of them are going to do the best they can to make this trip a success for their own domestic political reasons as well. >> dana, ten years ago, as you know, we started a war on the basis of false information. today we're looking at a war in syria where the question of who is using chemical weapons, even if they are using them, can't be confirmed. is it your view, dana, that our reluctance to engage in syria is a direct result of our experience in iraq? >> well, certainly it's a response to that, martin, but also the situation in syria is a lot more ambiguous and is not exactly clear what can be done there. but certainly the hesitation in responding here, not necessarily hesitation, but a skepticism about whether reports are to be believed or not, is very specifically a reaction to the gullibility that was expressed a little over ten years ago that led us into that war. so that's why there is every reason to be taking this cautiously and slowl
and that philosophy is viewed by about 57 of colorado's 62 elected sheriffs. i just think that, for instance, there's no way for me to know that a magazine is in possession of an individual we come in contact, was acquired before or after the ban. and i don't believe that a magazine capacity limitation will solve the problems we're facing with just about 15 minutes of practice, sir, i could have you -- you're doing a magazine exchange, in about two seconds. so the mass shooters could still fire the same number of rounds with only a limited extra number of seconds. >> right. but with respect, mr. sheriff, you're in a state, which has just brought in these laws. and one of the reasons they brought them in was what happened at that movie theater in aurora in colorado. where a deranged young man called holmes walked in and had four weapons, including assault rifles, and including 100 bullet magazines. now, you can't tell me that he could not have been stopped earlier if he hadn't had a magazine with 100 bullets in. and that's the point of this, isn't it? >> well, certainly, on the surface, it is. but,
to "the new york times," the newly elected pontiff privately supported civil unions for gay couples when the archbishop of buenos aires in 2010. then he publicly opposed gay marriage and went against the government of argentina in so doing. but his willingness to accept ip as compromise if true offers insight into how he might change the church. "outfront" tonight, father edward beck, host of "the sunday mass," good to see you again. we talked about this getting ready for when we were -- what was going to be the next pope. so senior vatican receives say we have no comment on this. we're not going to say whether he supported civil unions for gay couples or not. what's your take? >> listen, it wasn't so private, there was a bishop's meeting in 2010 of all of the bishops in argentina. he was the head of the bishop's conference. it looked like same sex marriage was going to pass in argentina. so as a compromise, he said we want to come out for human rights. let's support same sex civil union. for the first time in six years they voted him down. he got everything else through as head of that
that was thoroughly rejected by the american people last election. mitt roll any and paul ryan talked about the approach to the budget issues, the people in this country clearly said they didn't want to go in that direction. yesterday there was a vote on the house floor for that, unfortunately it passed with a lot of tea party members in the house. at the same time we still have not gotten a vote on common sense gun safety measures, the most obvious one being universal background checks, and as you said, speaker boehner had to walk back a proposal which called for the common-sense solution, because the tea party and others apparently bombarded his office when he made sense on this issue. so, look, the answer to this will require the american people to remain engaged and to demand that the victims in newtown, the victims in aurora, the victims of other mass shootings, and those who die every day from gun violence, that they get a vote in the house of representatives. >> but here's the problem, congressman. the polls is on the side of these common-sense measures. 57% support an assault weapon
? absolutely. it is problematic making him the face of the issue. he did well in the last year's elections as well as special election in chicago. >> right. >> but wasn't the face of it. taking a big northeast mayor and putting him in the middle of some of these swing states and some senators that are going to be facing re-election, red state senators who are democrats, that's a problem. >> ken, let's talk about the momentum that susan is talking about. senator mccain emerges as a key player in the debate now, i want your thoughts on that, top of the list who could sign onto expanded background checks. also have gabby giffords and her husband were guests at the state of the union. they said this is the guy we want on our side. when you look at the momentum, three months on since newtown, has it shifted? is it now in the balance of those who advocate for gun ownership? >> yeah, i would say so. some of that was inevitable. i don't know if it is fully in the hands of those that support gun ownership and oppose additional restrictions, but clearly the momentum has diminished somewhat. we see t
the election but continues to win policy. also on twitter fred wilder says when did senator reid become the most powerful republican in the united states. i want a real democrat as a majority leader. teamster said sadly, this is true, senator feinstein was against filibuster reform so she is now reaping what she was sown >> bill: she was not there with tom harkin and others. and geoff merkley for oregon who wanted to get rid of that filibuster, but she was on the other side. well, sadly for her. maybe she regrets it now. ron is out in elgin, illinois. hey, ron what do you say? >> normally, i would say good morning, bill. but it's not a good morning. the leaders have failed us again. this issue just irritates me right to the core of my bones. >> bill: yeah. >> caller: we have lost our soul as a nation if 203rd graders gunned down in less doesn't turn this nation to do something about the assault weapon ban, i don't know what will. >> bill: go back to the example of we talked about it, australia australia. right? when they had the brutal massive killing back t
democratic senators who voted against the budget plan, all of whom are up for re-election and one, frank lautenberg from new jersey, he didn't vote at all. meanwhile, politico reporting senator tim johnson from south dakota not planning to run again in 2014. that puts yet another democratic seat in play. another notable democratic senator planning to step down, michigan's carl levin. yesterday on her facebook page, former governor jennifer granholm announced not to run for his seat. >>> and the president is on his way home right now. president obama spent four days in the middle east meeting with israeli, palestinian and jordanian leaders. his last stop to jordan's ancient city of petra, known to some as one of the seven wonders of the world. known to others as home to indiana jones' excellent adventures. >>> president obama and his team are enroute, home from the middle east. but they left one member of their party behind. secretary of state john kerry. martin fletcher is live for must tel aviv with more. martin, good to see you, sir. who is kerry planning on meeting with? >> reporter:
tougher to defend in a general election. limits on guns. >> you know, it must be awful to lead a public office and concluding that even though you might believe you should take action that you can't take action because of a political consequence you face. what a heck of a way to make a living. >> nbc's senior political editor mark murray is here with more on this morning's first report. i know it's 2013. everyone says it's too early. golly. everything we just played there seems like it's not too early. one thing i was fascinated by and i thought that clip did it really well. it seems as though paul -- rand paul and marco rubio are sort of watching one another on immigration but on a lot of things to, particularly on marco rubio's end to make sure there isn't a lot of space between marco rubio and rand paul. am i over evaluating? >> certainly rand paul has been in the spotlight a lot. he ended up getting the cpac straw poll. don't put a lot of stock in that but he still won it. he had his big filibuster a few weeks ago. >> right. >> then this big immigration speech. you are right. you ar
of california and jim antle. coming up the presidential election and tragedy of newtown the two biggest domestic policy priorities for president and democrats on capitol hill are overhauling the country's immigration laws and strengthening its gun laws. in the twin tales of how these priorities have fared in the first few months of the 113th congress reveal a lot about the political pressures republicans are and are not facing right now. on tuesday senate majority leader harry reid announced he would not include a measure sponsored by senator feinstein to ban assault weapons. instead he said it would be considered as an amendment. >> i want people to have the ability to vote on assault weapons, mental health, safety in schools, federal trafficking, clips, everything. but i cannot do that until i get a bill on the floor. right now her amendment using the most optimistic numbers has less than 40 votes. that's not 60. i have to get something on the floor so we can have votes on that issue and the other issues that i talked about. >> it's prompt this headline on wednesday from ""the onion"." the tim
the elections i think netanyahu thought he was in charge and he was rooting for mitt romney, lots of talk about potential attack on iran. the president has since won convincingly, netanyahu has lost some ground at home. i thought reading the pool reports that come back, netanyahu was complaining about all of the challenges he's facing putting together his new government and obama basically said, well, talk to me about it. look what my problems on capitol hill are, and netanyahu said, yeah, but we have more moving parts over here, parts in our country don't move at all, that's the problem. >> i had my doubts about whether or not he was going to shift netanyahu's opinion on him. i felt that from the -- remember that photototof netanyahu and obama sitting on the couch in the white house? >> the oval office. >> do you remember that? >> sure. being lectured. >> the whole body posture and so forth. but some of the video emerging from this trip is so authentic and even the words of netanyahu describing obama and what he means, what obama means to him in this relationship. a true friend. it was very au
of congress losing elections before people in washington will realize that the politics on this thing have changed. the ground is shifting underneath the politicians right now. they don't see it, but the ground is shifting and as i say, it's going to have to take a concerted effort for many of these elected officials to lose office before they realize the public wants something very serious out of this. >> as i just said, julian. we put the phone number for congress and we invite members of the public, please do call your congressional members. just today weave seen a slew of gun-related headlines. three dead at quantico marine base. a 13 month old baby shot in the head in her stroller. a drunk teenage boy shot dead after entering the wrong home by mistake and yet what's happening? the people who say more gun, fewer laws, they are the ones today who appear to be winning this argument. the thing is that you have to understand -- i hope people can appreciate this and this is the disenchantment piece, the nra for the times they want to out to members is a small group of folks with a lot of po
or she would like it to be a better country. you think? there are some that get managed to be elected to congress who secretly hope to bring this country down. i suppose that's possible. but don't count on a bunch hearings or high profile probes to do the job of finding them. i have to say that we've been here before. been there before. congresswoman bachmann, been there done that. nobody who remembers him wants very much to see it all happen again. thank god. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show," starts now. >> good evening americans. welcome to "the ed show." i'm eric michael dyson. after a decade of war,er with still uncovering lies that led us into conflict with iraq. turns out union busting governor john kay sick won't support unions either. ceo of starbucks serves up support for minimum wage increase. reverend jesse jackson joins me on public schools. >>> but first, bowling for columbine, i will ask michael moore why the need for gun control is even more urgent. this is "the ed show," and as ed would say, let's get to work. >>> we begin with an
have a poll in the last two weeks from quinnipiac university which shows that 47%/43%. on election day in the network exit poll 49%/46%. >> hilary rosen -- >> it's clearly moved but the idea the american people are, you know, universally for same sex marriage is just not backed up. >> one of the things you look at, hilary, the youth vote. those who supported that poll, 81% under 30 support marriage equality. where are we as the supreme court takes this up? >> well, and another interesting part about the youth vote, unlike a lot of other issues that ralph works on, the evangelical yaut, according to alex lundry, mitt romney's data analyst, over 60% of evangelical youth support gay marriage. this has taken over the tide. i think the supreme court as good citizens as they are, are really going to decide this case based on what's fair and right based on the constitution, which is, is there a rational reason to treat two sets of loving couples differently under the law? >> david brooks, the country is divided. there are 41 states that either ban it or treat gay marriage as something differe
that's going to change her election. she's worried about louisiana. she's worried about getting re-elected in that state. and until you see the zeitgeist change within the state, these politicians are not responsive to that. where bloomberg can make a huge difference is he can go into a local race, a congressional district, he can go in on a state. when mary landrieu starts seeing bloomberg money against her, then i think she might change her mind. >> let's talk about bloomberg money. as if he's got bloomberg money. "the new york times" quotes thomas mann from brookings, said the $12 million in advertising was unlikely to influence the outcome of the legislation, unless lawmakers were convinced that mr. bloomberg would open his wallet again after the vote, both to reward those who supported the bill and to punish those who did not. that's absolutely key, said mann. what do you make of that? >> i think that makes sense. in the immediate environment we're in today, one of these media campaigns can be a flash in the pan. but i think this is a long game and think it's a long game for good reas
. and we also have a new independent elections commission and we are looking at jordan as a model that is evolutionary and essential and peaceful and ensures openness, tolerance, moderation and unity. and equally as important, the level playing field. this will ensure safeguards of civil liberties and political rights and obviously encourage political participation. today, we're looking forward to our prime minister form forming his government in the next couple of weeks, based on his consultations with parliament, which is an extension of the same consultation process that led to his designation and receiving the highest number of nominations. so i'm very proud of the progress so far. the hard work is definitely ahead of us and this is the moment we're saying is the third way in the middle east. what we are saying that the arab spring is behind us and we're looking at the arab summer for us all which means we all have to roll up our sleeves, it's going to be a bumpy and difficult road, but i'm very encouraged by the process and very excited about the future. so again, mr. preside
community, particularly during this last election, who saw benjamin netanyahu cozying up to mitt romney, who were very skeptical about the president and israel. i think this trip as john king was saying earlier makes it very clear particularly when the president on the question of iran said all options are on the table, period, the president made it very clear as he said in his speech today, you are not alone. so i think domestically, politically, this trip is only good for the president. it makes him be seen as a leader. next to benjamin netanyahu these two men need each other in many ways right now and i think that is why you see this relationship blossoming. >> richard haas do you think anything is going to come of this? will there be a peace process any time soon? >> again, the situation is decidedly unripe given the divisions of the palestinians, the israeli government is not a government that was elected to make peace. this was a government that was elected to deal with the special privileges of the orthodox within israeli society. you got the turbulence in egypt. you will have turbule
and their elected representatives to make marriage policy. we don't need the court striking down marriage laws in all 50 states. >> evan -- go ahead. >> yeah, well, actually, what was just said se completely untrue. in fact, all the evidence that's been now compiled by all the leading public health authorities, the child welfare authorities, groups like the american academy of pediatrics, nation's kids doctors put out another statement in support of freedom to marry. and the experts on child raising all said ending the exclusion from families would strengthen marriage and -- >> that's not what they said. the american academy of pediatrics is a left-leaning activist group issuing statements -- balance the budget and which guns we should ban. another group of pediatrician you men college of pediatrician filed an amicus brief showing evidence that children need a mother and a father. >> hey, guys -- >> professors at harvard and chicago showing the same thing. >> i have to -- hey, guys, one second. i want to bring in here, one of the reasons we keep you around here. speak to some of this here. wha

elections? >> well it is critical. you stop and think about this. of course let's focus here on the senate, not the house. what you have is, you have i think it is 10 democratic senators who are unaring in states that were won by mitt romney. so you have them very cautious about upsetting gun owners and upsetting powerful forces, forces with dollars to spend on campaigns like the nra. gun hobbyists who of course vote and turn out in big numbers behind this issue. this is an issue that will bring out voters to the polls. this is why you had not seen any motion on gun control before newtown. the president despite the concern of people who are gun enthusiasts had not taken any action. feinstein, senator feinstein had not taken any action even though the assault weapons ban had expired just about 10 years earlier. so you see the change. jenna: let's a little bit about that because dianne feinstein says she is disappointed in this. she said if you think congress would listen and clearly listened to the nra. a lot of fingers point to the nra as the reason behind the fact this part of the legisla
of republicans in elected, political office are not yet supportive. but there is definitely much less polarization around this. >> and also a seminnother impor moment. john berman turned another year older. zoraida has the cakes. >> i took my mike off and i need to use yours. let me tell you, we got you this cake and i went to the back and had you two additional cakes. you are a very popular man. happy birthday. no candles. but you can pretend and make a wish. >> the different cakes, because the staff can't agree on what they like. >> velvet, oreo, and chocolate fudge. >> we have to pause so i can eat this. now to newsroom with carol cosstello, pretty please. >> happy birthday! >> thank you. >>> happening now in the newsroom, breaking overnight. rockets fired just miles from president obama in israel. >>> also, shut down in chicago. >> i think it's a bit ridiculous. >> if you take them out of where they live, what does that say to the child? >> an unprecedented move to close 50 elementary schools. critics say it targets minorities and the poor. >>> plus dow watch. records being shatte
most if notal of those senators re-elected. already it is a difficult prospect, and it w be made more difficult, reid fears, if they were asked to vote on this. >> woodruff: when senator feinstein says reid has promised hear, in essence, he will let her introduce an amendment there, will be a vote on the amendment, what are the prospickets it's going to get any easier then? >> reporter: as reid said very specifically yesterday, quite astonish will, he said he doesn't think it has even 40 votes but it will fulfill a promise he made on behalf of the president to hold an up-or-down vote on this measure even if it doesn't have support. it has broad support in polling the "washington post" has done and pew has done and other groups but considering the breakdown of the senate where you need 60 votes in order to end debate on something and about that number-- well, you really need just about 50 for final passage but in order to get over the procedural hurdle in the senate you need 6015, maybe 20 are not comfortable voting for this and there certainly aren't enough republicans, either. >> woo
before our elections as saying that he considered the leadership in israel as political cowards. he seems to be going over their heads to the israeli young people, trying to give them hope and trying to encourage them to press their leaders to make peace. and that is, i think, a very bold and courageous thing. but i would say one other thing. he, having tried to lower expectations about this visit, has now raised them sky high in terms of the expectations that israelis and palestinians will have, that he, himself, is now going to work to make peace really possible. >> and that is the challenge. where do the israelis and the palestinians and the united states and others in the international community go from here? let's bring in dr. hanan, joining us from , what did you of what the president had to say? >> well, i do think that this was the most comprehensive speech we have heard. it has the same basic components, but on the one hand, it has a very clear geological component. i don't think i have heard an american president with such a strong commitment to the zionist ideology. and to an u
